After I mentioned some western double standards before, here are some Arab world doublies:

..if those who demonstrate are real Muslims who say the truth even against their relatives, they should burn the egyptian flag and the Yemeni flag (new papers in yemen showed the cartoons)..those Mullas who condemned the danish government must now condemn the Jordanian, Egyptian and Yemeni government and burn their flags..if not they are hypocrites and Islam inocent from the deeds of those folks.

In Islamic history, the Arab dictator of some 1366 years ago, Yazid Ibn Muawiyeh even threw stones on the Kaaba as Muslims holy place..I think it is part of the muslim duty to criticize their past before criticizing the present..

People should understand that Islam is someting and Arabism is an other one. It is like Ideology and Ethnicity...most world Muslim -acording to my research- do not represent purpose of Islam and distroy islam rather than build it due to traditions and superstition.
